Excellent food and service. Prices are on the higher end but we'll worth it due to the taste and quality of the food.

Clean appearance, friendly staff. Love the pickled onions on dinner salad, just wish there had been more salad. My husband had a steak, said it was pretty good and enjoyed his wine. I had the green curry w/chicken...I won’t order again. Either I’ve never had...More

The food and service are good, with friendly staff and good variety of choices however the coffee needs some help as it is on the weak side and be careful you don’t sit in one of the numerous broken chairs on the patio. Staff was...More

Cute building, good food & service, but higher prices than expected for what you get. The burger was good & a nice twist to add a cup of chowder instead of the standard fries or chips. The Greek salad however was $15 for a vegetarian...More

After having read several reviews complaining about service and a downturn in food quality, I'm happy to report that we had both great food and competent service. So here's the deal. We arrived a little after noon on a Monday in the middle of July,...More

We had the pita and hummus platter and a cup of vege soup. The food was excellent. The place was busy and maybe one person understaffed. Once we ordered the food was quickly delivered to the table. Would recommend this placeto friends.

Breakfast was way underwhelming. Mushy potatoes, tiny biscuits,no butter, soggy bacon , slow service after being seated. The place is nice, the server pleasant but the food just doesn’t justify the no 1 rating or 5 star rating. Quite disappointed especially with all the hype.
